Earlier this year Mozilla plans to release a paid version of Firefox, with features such as secure cloud storage and VPN.
Designed to be released in October, the product targets users who want more privacy while browsing. But well, additional features may make it even more interesting.
According to a Reddit user who would be part of the new browser’s beta program, the company plans to offer an additional one so that news sites can be read without ads. And the best: the newspapers would receive to remove them from your news and articles.
At a cost of $ 4.99, Mozilla – according to the user – promises to wipe out ads on any article you read, whether it’s a big newspaper or a blog. She did not explain how she would do this but would have made it clear in the service offering that she would pass on unspecified amounts to all the sites you visited and the advertising was deleted.
If this is the final value of the service will end up being an interesting competitor to Apple News Plus, as it will make reading more practical information and will still finance the vehicles.
In any case, we should only have concrete data on the paid version of Firefox – and its add-ons – in the coming months, when Mozilla designs its launch.
Would you use it? Mozilla aims to launch “paid version” of Firefox soon, reveals CEO of the company
Mozilla developer recently revealed through its CEO, during an interview with the German publication T3N that intends to launch a subscription service this year, linked to the Firefox browser with a focus on features such as secure cloud storage and VPN.
The expectation is that this novelty is still seen in October, but has not revealed in detail what will be effectively available or what will be the price paid by users to benefit from the news.
According to Chris Beard, CEO of Mozilla during an interview with T3N, the idea is to bring differentials in a subscription service, without changing the features offered free to users.
So what we want to clarify is that there are no plans to charge money for things that are now free. Therefore, we will launch a subscription service and offer a premium level. And the plan is to present the first of this year, for autumn. We aim for October.
One point that seems clear however is that services classified as “premium” aim to seek above all users who want more privacy in their navigation, offering more advanced tools when compared to the free version, at a moment when the question is massively data leakage and information leakage.
Note that recently, Mozilla itself has revealed improvements in security mechanisms to prevent data crawling through a set of extensions.
